Really, Does our Brain and the Universe Function Like a Hologram? Part Two

In the last article I was talking about how the brain is like a hologram. So remember that a hologram is a result of two or more wave patterns intersecting which creates interference patterns. So the bothersome question on the table is where is the brain’s wave patterns? In other words the brain’s rippling pond?

Well it turns out that the brain processes information through neurons... neurons are electrical pathways running throughout the brain and body. Information is transmit by sending an electrical current through a neuron and when it reaches the tip this electrical current radiates out towards another tip or node. This electrical jump from one node to another node creates a wave pattern throughout the brain. Since these neurons are packed very tightly and that there is a lot of jumping going on multiple wave patterns collide, creating multiple interference patterns. Amazing huh! Read More

Really, Does our Brain and the Universe Function Like a Hologram?

I am reading this amazing book called the “Holographic Universe” by Michael Talbot.

I like to be introduced to books, thoughts and ideas that are outside my framework which create a “screeking” noise in my brain as I am forced to stretch my “little box of reality” to understand and perhaps integrate some new concepts. This book made my brain “screek” a lot!

In it are pretty amazing ideas and often I felt like I was Alice falling down the rabbit hole so I invite you to relax into T.H. Huxley words as you read some of the the concepts I found most fascinating.
